Just expanded and making great steps to transform beyond a strip mall Sushi place. Service is really good and the quality and portions are what you would want from a great place. Looking forward to the official grand opening in a couple of weeks. -G

I have always taken new employees here for their first day- but that stopped today. This place has decent food, usually good service, and a great location. But they are very expensive- and today my new employee asked for brown rice instead of white rice...More
